Hey team-

So I have been wrestling with getting Steam installed on my computer for quite some time now, and I had given up all hope.  Well today I finally did the smart thing and installed POL to manage my different wine distros, and I figured I could get it up and running-and during the steam summer sale to boot!

Well, alas my core problem still exists.  During the initial update that happens right after you install the msi file, Steam tells me that I need to be connected to the internet in order to update, yaddayaddayadda, then it crashes.  Same error as before.

When opening up the debugger, I found the following error pop up over and over again, followed by various filesize mismatch errors:

"fixme:winhttp:get_system_proxy_autoconfig_url no support on this platform"
"[2013-06-23 12:29:15] Package file missing or incorrect file size"

I have searched all over the forums for how to fix this, and I just can't seem to find a solution anywhere.  Any ideas?
